I prefer to keep the original imapd.conf option for disabling mailbox 
referrals.  I think suppress_capabilities was intended to hide 
capabilities, not alter Cyrus' behavior in this way.

Also, removing the original config option will break installations that 
are upgrading.  I know that is kinda awkward here anyways because this 
config option hasn't worked right in Cyrus 2.4 from the beginning though.
